Hello, I recently got a new solid state hard drive installed in my old laptop, which seriously increased it's speed. However now that I want to install my games I realized how little room there is on it, but since the old ~600GB hard drive is still in there as D: I'd thought I'd use it instead. Does this also mean that the games i have on it wil be run by it? Will it still run like before (slow) or does it make no difference where the files are stored and will my solid state hard drive be bypassed?

 

As you might have guessed, I am not that good with computers.

:welcome:   thijsjanssen,

 

You will only see an increase in data efficiency access times for data on the SSD, software load times for the HDD will not change I`m afraid.

 

JAFYI: When doing a build for folk I always recommend that if the budget allows a minimum of a 256GB SSD be used, this gives plenty of room for Windows and all of the future updates, any AV software + a couple of your most used programs, I also tend to partition the SSD as well but you can get away without doing so.
